Entertainment

“​"Infinity Hall is more than just a concert venue – it's an entertainment & dining experience. We started with a single location in picturesque Norfolk, Connecticut. Built in 1883 as a combination opera house, barbershop, and saloon, the venue has a long history in the entertainment business. Today, the Norfolk venue retains its original stage and beautiful details, but has been restored to include a world-class sound system and modern facilities."”

School
“Yale University just celebrated the 75th year of its Norfolk Chamber Music Festival. Only 8 miles from Pineapple Hill Farm, the festival itself is a draw, but Norfolk itself is a jewel!”

Park
“"The 34 foot high stone tower at the summit of Haystack Mountain (1716 feet above sea level) allows visitors to see the Berkshires, and peaks in Massachusetts, New York, and the Green Mountains of Vermont. A roadway provides access halfway up the mountain. Prominent along the road is a spectacle of foliage in the fall and an outstanding show of mountain laurel in June. From the end of the road there is a rugged half-mile trail to the top. Allow about half an hour for this walk if you are not a seasoned hiker."”

State / Provincial Park
Natural Feature
“Climb to the top to the 34 foot high stone tower at the summit of Haystack Mountain (1716 feet above sea level) and you'll have an amazing 360 degree view of the Berkshires, Massachusetts, New York, and the Green Mountains of Vermont. A roadway provides access halfway up the mountain. Prominent along the road is a spectacle of foliage in the fall and an outstanding show of mountain laurel in June. From the end of the road there is a rugged half-mile trail to the top. Allow about 45-60 mins for this walk if you are not a seasoned hiker and if you are, there's a path at the side that's more challenging.”
